and the issues we deal with in the coast and trying to tie that to the tax base and relate that both from a local regional perspective but also a national perspective. when you look at it, 30% of this nation's g.d.p. comes from the gulf coast. you look at the population increase we've had. since 1970, there has been 109% increase in the gulf coast region. the people are there, the vulnerabilities are there but also it is significant to what it provides to the nation. from the states perspective and also from the gulf we recognize that healthy ecosystems also can mean healthy economies. from louisiana, what we have taken -- what we believe is a very good first effort the addressing the vulnerabilities that exist in reducing that risk is with the state's matter of fact plan which is a long- term plan to reduce the economic significance and reduce the risk across the coast. we believe we can achieve protection for all coastal communities. it is that resource that is important. the states provide and the gulf provides to the nation, it if it is going to be afforded through the nation. we believe with

, hidden taxes will take a painful bite. inside is the story from that conley who friends the argument more so in the washington d.c. area. local residents will be paying uncle sam more in 2013, between the two percent increase in payroll tax and to lesser known provisions buried in the fiscal cliff deal. there is also the issue of the health care tax, which also may hit some individuals. more details from the washington sunday examiner. the question we are focusing on is whether the president will bypass congress to raise the debt ceiling. we are getting your calls in common. buddy on the republican line. caller: good morning. it would not surprise me that he does raise the debt ceiling. the president alone spent over $1 billion last year just to himself. when does it stop? obviously he has never had a checkbook. i get a bill, i pay it. why do they just keep putting money out, putting money out, not take care of what they're doing doing, not realizing what they're doing? host: they give for the call. this from twitter -- the focus on the 14th amendment, section four, basically says that th

. boehner first broke his rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal cliff on taxes. apparently there's an addendum to the boehner rule. the majority of the majority, unless the country is on the verge of a tax crisis, or chris christie has access the to a megaphone. christie made sure this week that republicans knew he would use it. >> and i'll say again, new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana and alabama and mississippi and if they want to make new rules about disasters, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules with. >> and yesterday, new york congressman peter king, who berated boehner when he failed to bring the bill up at the end of the last congress, ignored the divisions within his party, saying time for recriminations is over. >> i'm proud to stand here today with all of us united. now, maybe your divisions to vote, but all of us are committed to getting this done. i want to thank the chairman of the rules committee, mr. sessions, for the great job they've done in bringing it here, with a fair rule, and allowing for

a fine and pay back taxes and prove they lived in the u.s. for an extended period and understand some english. president obama has promised to dive into an immigration overhaul, as well, this year. >>> well, we've said it before, congress is unpopular, but worse than cockroaches? apparently. new numbers from public policy polling pitted congress against the worst of the worst. they found congress was less popular than brusal sprouts and used car salesman. but even worse, people have a higher opinion of cockroaches, replacement referees and root canals. so, what did congress beat out? lindsay lohan, lobbyists and the kardashians. not very complimentary. but there seems to be one place that people really like washington, at the movies. cnn chris lawrence reports, hollywood's portrayal of washington may be just a little off base. >> maybe they ran out of super heroes or aliens weren't available. >> there are only bad options. it's about finding the best one. >> reporter: hollywood is turning to government analysts to anchor its hit films. >> mia, this is joseph bradley. >> reporter: form
